You’re Invited to My Party!

Sunday is my birthday, 72 years’ burdening the earth, and you’re all invited to my party. Our apartment isn’t suitable, so I’m constructing an imaginary house with a big back porch and a porch swing (gee, that picture looks like Grandpa’s porch! Just exactly like it!), horseshoe pits in the yard, folding tables for Monopoly games–the works. It’ll all be ready by Sunday morning.

There’ll be beer, cigars, wine, soft drinks, fruit punch; cake, donuts, crabcakes; and I wouldn’t be surprised if a few of you showed up with the means of making music for us. (You know who you are!) Hamburgers, hot dogs, spare ribs. I am prepared to spend however much imaginary money it takes to make this imaginary party a success.

If we put our minds to it and all work together, we just might look like a Grandma Moses painting.

So who’s gonna be there? Everyone’s invited.

Now excuse me while I set some lawn chairs under the catalpa tree…

  1. Wow, I can hardly wait! I call dibs on the hot dogs! Maybe a hamburger as well. Will you have sauerkraut for the hot dogs, or should I bring my own? 🙂 🙂

    Many happy returns of the day, Lee!

  2. Gee willikers, what a kind invitation. 72, huh? You are just a kid yet compared to me. Sounds like you have a lot of fun planned. I am thinking of bringing a mixed fruit salad with cream cheese dressing; how does that sound? A sing-a-thon sounds like fun. I know we have some fantastic musicians.

    1. Ina, we were posting the same idea at the same time! Two great minds…. 🙂 🙂
